The top cop in Thompson says that he’s behind Bill 229 which would see an expansion to the Intoxicated Persons Detention Act

 

Inspector Kevin Lewis, the officer in charge of the Thompson RCMP detachment, said that he is in favour of Liberal MLA Cindy Lamoureaux’s bill, which would see the Act expanded to allow law enforcement officers to detain people who are under the influence of drugs.

Lewis added that the legalization of marijuana will create a new burden on both the justice and health systems, so any extra tools for front-line workers will help make sure there is a smooth transition.

 

The Manitoba Court of Appeal said in the 1980’s that the act only applies to intoxication by liquor.
